Ex-inmate with facial tattoo accepts offer of free removal

Since his release he's struggled to find work to support his family.

Mark Cropp, from New Zealand, had been inebriated when his cell mate - who is also his brother - gave him the tattoo, while he was completing a two-year sentence in prison for an aggravated robbery charge.

"I am regretting it..."

Speaking to the New Zealand Herald, Cropp said: "It's become a part of me but if it means that I have to part with it to be able to get a job and become who I want to be then I'm going to have to part with it".

He also said his tattoo which is not gang affiliated- wasn't planned and was not supposed to be quite as big.

Cropp (19) said his social media post on the Auckland job Facebook page was an effort to show that he was a "normal human being", despite preconceptions about people with tattoos.

"Keen as on job or work place that will take me on".

"My partner Taneia was just a month due to drop my baby, and we had nowhere to go so I committed the crime - and I never got to see [the baby] again".

"I was applying to a few things on Facebook and I thought "well actually I shouldn't have to let my facial tattoo hold me back" and that's when I took the selfie and put a bit of a description on it and just went from there".

"I've had a lot of job offers, I've had people wanting to help me start up my own blog to help me through my journey". He has accepted the offer.

He told the New Zealand Herald that he made a decision to get "DEVAST8" tattooed across his face while in jail to deter other inmates from bullying him.
